    after the edgar loss he looks like he lost a lot of swag in his fighting style.. been rooting for him, not really expecting that much for him.. i wouldnt surprise if he gets mauled here, stephens always had that switch to turn the lights off.. for sure this will be action packed great match-up.. stephens vs volkanovski would be savage

      John Smith 145 isn’t tiny. Rodriguez, Stephens, Holloway, Magomedsharipov and Aldo aren’t tiny.

      @regular_dude he cuts weight and fights at 145.

    • regular_dude
      regular_dude Month ago

      @GLTCH 12345 hes average height but very thin and small boned for a man of his height. The average 5'10 or 5'11 man would fight at 155 or 170 so hes a little small boned for his height.

    • regular_dude
      regular_dude Month ago

      @Schizophrenic0 lee's boxing skill is good but his power is terrible he has 2 knockouts in 17 wins thats a terrible ratio and those were ground and pound kos. If he had 7kos in 17 wins that would be average. A hard ko puncher would have atleast 10 or 11kos in 17wins .

    • Schizophrenic0
      Schizophrenic0 Month ago

      @regular_dude lee throws pretty hard his boxing is not that bad

    • regular_dude
      regular_dude Month ago

      @New Keys 19 of his 28 wins are kos. Definitely not luck. His power is a weapon its not lucky when a ko puncher gets a ko. Its lucky when a feather fisted puncher like michael chiesa or kevin lee get a ko.

    I like Jeremy, but i think he's setting himself up to be in a compilation video "when trash talking goes bad." It's tragic, but i predict Jeremy loses again. Yair is very quick and long. Jeremy is coming in hard, and Yair has the answer.
